Thank you for your query
Firstly nothing can replace breast milk. There are certain medications available for increasing your breast milk. You consult your gynecologist or pediatrician for a prescription. And lactogen 1 is specifically designed for newborns. So it is alright to give it to your baby. If its costly, cow's milk is also an alternative. Hope this helps
Take care.
